The International Windsurfing Tour is a product of Tradewind Events LLC, which is supported by sailors and industry through entry fees and donations. We rely on the generous support of our international community of patrons, and we really appreciate your contributions.
The International Windsurfing Tour has been running for 9 years (7 years as American Windsurfing Tour), and in that time has never turned a profit because all proceeds have been reinvested in the growth of the Tour. In the first year of the Tour we had one event with just over 80 entrants. We grew to 10 events with more than 500 participants from around the world in 2018. This year the first two events have broken all previous record entrant numbers and we are on track for further expansion. We need your ongoing support for that growth in our sport.
